Whats your favorite music movie?
Crossroads is on TV now. Love this movie.
Blues Brothers rules, and The Commitments was quite good.
Crossroads sucked except for Vai and Cooder's playing, Roadhouse except for Jeff Healey.
[EDIT]How could I forget Spinal Tap - goes to 11...
Movies about music? I'd have to say CB4
This Is Spinal Tap
...live scenes from new york...
i saw this cool movie on IFC with Sean Penn as a crazy jazz guitarist... but i don't remember what it was called.
shine (i think thats the name of it...) is pretty good. its about that piano player that was insanely good, but sorta mentally retarded, excellent music related movie (ture story too)
Another good one is Swing Kids, about a little-known subculture in nazi Germany.
I liked the blues brothers movies. No real preference for the 1st or second, both have some great songs.(though that little kid is a LITTLE annoying )
I'm sure the last waltz is pretty good, I haven't seen it yet, but I read the bands biography/memoirs thing written by the drummer(levon helm) and they do kick ass.
Six String Samurai is also reall good, it's silly as hell, but there are some good songs, and some nice symbolism.
i agree with ARA...Empire Records
I have a soft spot for "Eddie and The Cruisers". Circa 1983. If I watched it again now though, it would probably seem tacky and outdated so I avoid it and just hang on to the memory of what a great movie I thought it was 20 years ago.
Blues Brothers 1 & 2
Commitments - "I'm black, and I'm proud!"
Six String Samurai
Do musicals count, or just movies about music?
Does SLC Punk count as music oriented, or is it more "punk lifestyle" oriented?
More punk lifestyle. Good movie though. Makes you think, brought me much pain doing that.
Video Plasty, and Spinal Tap, Man, I haven't even seen it yet, and it ruled!
I never saw the young ones as a troupe. When I think of troupes, I think Firesign Theater and The Kids in the Hall.
I gotta put La Bamba up there. Killer soundtrack.
I'd say it's just about growing up. Not really about the punk lifestyle, that's just the vehicle used to convey the movies message.
